Vedanta’s 5th Birthday Celebration | Housewarming Party

I posted on Monday, the Eggless Triple Chocolate Mini Bundt Cake, I had made for Vedanta’s 5th Birthday keeping in mind his love for chocolate. I made a mini cake as it was just for 4 of us.

_DSC0448So we brought in a neighbourhood South-Indian vendor to churn out varieties of dosas, uttapa, gulab jamun. As a side I made Curd Rice and roasted some papads.

_DSC0463I didn’t bake the cake for the party. I just decided to take it easy.

_DSC0456My fellow blogger & dear friend Tes was the first one to arrive and very sweetly got me stash of cookies (which are just yumm and my kids have been gorging on them). Priyanka was the photographer for the event and has shot some amazing moments. I told her to go with candid shots and that’s what she did! :)

_DSC0447Kids had a great time that is for sure. Cries of joy, naughtiness & laughter filled the house.

We bought our first house about 10 months ago and moved in 7 months ago. We did not have time to get most of the work done between possession and moving. Finally in last 2 months, we got some basic changes made to the house including a kitchen, terrace garden and shed.

_DSC0466So we decided to throw our first housewarming party coinciding with the birthday celebrations. It became a dual celebration and hence a bigger party and guest list.

The only hiccup for the evening was that the Dosa vendor was slow on speed and people had to wait for a long time initially. Later on he did pick up speed and all was not lost! Phew!
